Lounges in Bangkok
new Turkish Airlines Lounge first before heading to the EVA Air Lounge. I did not stay long in the Turkish Airlines Lounge as my primary goal was just to take photos and I knew that the EVA Air Lounge has a much better food and drinks selection.
the EVA Air Lounge informing passengers that there is a delay and that the new departure time is 3:05am instead of the scheduled 2:45am. I asked the staff in the reception about the new boarding time and she said it would be 2:35am so I stayed in the lounge until it was 15 minutes before boarding time.

Rimowa Amenity Kit and Clarins
ANA and THAI had offered/offer them but only in first class. The contents of the kit included a comb, socks, eye mask, a dental kit, screen cloth and Clarins moisture rich body lotion, hand and nail treatment cream and lip balm 👍
in Qatar Airways first class a few years ago so it was nice to see a smaller version of this 😉
Minutes later, an announcement was made that there would be a further delay due to Vienna Airport being closed when we arrive.

As soon as the seat belt sign was turned off, the crew started with the meal service. My drinks and meal order was not taken prior to take off as we were already getting ready to depart Bangkok so I was the first one to be asked for my orders after take off. The flight attendant confirmed my order from the internet so she just took my drinks order.
For my main course, I ordered the lobster from the EVA Air website as those in the menu were Beef Rib eye, Roasted Chicken and Grilled Kapong Fish. I was really glad I ordered the lobster because it was soooooo good 😋
With an hour and 51 minutes before landing in Vienna, breakfast service started.
Landing in Vienna Airport (VIE)
The captain was once again back on the PA to inform us that we would be arriving in Vienna at 7:50am, about 30 minutes ahead of schedule, and the current temperature in Vienna of 7 degrees. For a safer landing, we were also asked to turn off all electronic device.
To be honest, I´ve been looking forward to taking this flight for a long time now as EVA Air is one of my favorite airlines in business class. Needless to say, I am also a fan of their Rimowa kits which is definitely the best amenity kit in business class in my opinion. The crew were very friendly and were always addressing me by my name and doing the refill of bread and drinks. The lobster was phenomenal and was one of the best dishes I´ve had on a plane. I actually loved everything on this flight except that the pillow was a bit too hard. Maybe it was just me. Of course, I was still able to sleep well. Overall, it was a very nice flight and hopefully I can fly with them again, and who knows on one of their Hello Kitty jets 😉
